You ever see those people in school or at college who are always deep in a book? It’s not so much that they love reading. It’s because when you’re on your own it’s too embarrassing to sit and do nothing. You’ve got to look busy, like you don’t care that no one wants to talk to ya.

People know the most important thing about your identity—that whoever you are, you’re like them. A human being. Hitler said he’s made “the Superman,” Stalin was called “The Man of Steel,” but no, one look at you, no, never, you blow that out of the water, because people know who the real Superman is. It’s this decent guy with the silly smile, who’s sometimes a little old fashioned, who lives a whole human life. Who fell in love and got married. Clark, coming from Krypton didn’t make you Superman—Martha and Jonathan did. And thanks to your doubts and your fears, and your absolute refusal to be above anyone, you do them proud every day. — Lois Lane, AC #904
